The Blonde actor has also decided to chime in on the debate, stating there isn’t a requirement to see a female bond but to give bond girls substantial depth. She commented on how the creators need to be faithful to the source material, she said in an interview with the Sun.

“There shouldn’t be any need to steal someone else’s character, you know, to take over….. This is a novel, and it leads into this James Bond world and this fantasy of that universe where he’s at.”

Furthermore, doubling down on keeping the character male, she described her issue with small character roles for females and how it can be changed, she noted:

What I would like is that the female roles in the Bond films, even though Bond will continue to be a man, are brought to life in a different way…. That they’re given a more substantial part and recognition. That’s what I think is more interesting than flipping things.”
